I had lunch at Miam Miam at Westgate today. I was attracted by the spaciousness of the restaurant and its interesting menu. According to the cover of their menu the restaurant serves “artisanal French cuisine”.
Miam Miam at Westgate had an eclectic country/industrial look that is so popular these days. Presented with a large menu with some beautiful photographs, I was spoilt for choice and so I enlisted the help of the waiter to make some recommendations. One of his two highly recommended choices was the Miam Miam spaghetti (the other was the squid ink rice). I ordered it as it sort of resonated with my mental shortlist, seeing that it was described as “our all time favourite” in the menu. Curiously enough, for a place claiming to offer “haute French cuisine”, many of the menu items seemed Italian. Perhaps it was some form of “nouvelle gastronomy”.
When it arrived, it was a large plateful of oily spaghetti with pieces of bacon, tomato and mushroom and a runny egg on top. It tasted as bland as it looks. For a restaurant that promised so much, to say that it under-delivered, would be an understatement.
